Beatrix: I liked the 2005 and 2008 outfits on her... I really hated the dead bird hat she wore in 2003.

Maxima: I adored her pinkoutfit in 2003 and the grey hatpiece in 2004. This year's outfit was pretty boring. The 2008 outfit was by far the worst she wore so far.

Laurentien: I liked her outfit in 2005. This year's hatpiece was horrible. Her worst outfit was the one in 2008. Totally hideous.

Margriet: She looked lovely in purple (2006) and I also liked her turquoise outfit in 2008. This year's outfit wasn't bad either. She somehow always looks lovely on Prinsjesdag.

My number 1 favourite Prinsjesdag fashion is Princess Maxima's purple gown in 2008. I like her other Prinsjesdag outfits that she wore over the years as well.

Beatrix: 2007
Maxima: tie between 2002, 2003, and 2007. The only one I really don't like is the orange one.
Laurentien: not crazy about any of them. The only one I don't dislike is probably 2007.
Margriet: 2008 is my number one winner for any of the women - EXACTLY what a little girl has in mind when she thinks of royalty. And I love 2006 as well.

Beatrix: None really stand out- all pretty typical QBea
Maximia: Love Red 2002 & the Black & White in 2006
Laurentien: Poor dear- predictably awful. She needs an emergency stylist STAT!
Margriet: Like the yellow & black 2007

Maxima - really wasnt keen on 2007 or 2006 but think the colours of 2008 and 2009 were lovely. Her outfit in 2003 was perfect for the stage of her pregnancy and really think the combination in 2004 is elegant

Queen Beatrix:I like the dark turquoise dress from 2005

Princess Máxima:I like almost all (except the orange one-ugly jacket); the best for me are outfits from 2006 and 2007

Princess Laurentien:this year's outfit is the best, except this strange hatpiece

Princess Margriet:I like dark blue and yellow suit ftom 2007 and turquoise outfit in 2008 - was really lovely

I am so curious what they will all wear this year!
Until now my favourite dress on Maxima was the black/white one in 2006. My least favourites were the ones in 2007 and 2009.

My favourites.
Beatrix - http://img190.imagevenue.com/img.php..._122_785lo.jpg

Maxima
1. http://img227.imagevenue.com/img.php..._122_463lo.jpg
2. http://img220.imagevenue.com/img.php..._122_574lo.jpg
3. http://img151.imagevenue.com/img.php..._122_918lo.jpg

Laurentien, just to ask did she wear the same dress two years running? Because the pictures for 2005 & 2006 are exactly the same?

1. http://img222.imagevenue.com/img.php...07_122_5lo.jpg
2. http://img220.imagevenue.com/img.php..._122_364lo.jpg (the dress)

2005 looks like something from the 1800's P&P time.

Margriet.

Despite how un-put together Máxma tends to look on day-to-day engagements, she always manages to pull it together for the 'big one' - Prinsjesdag. My favourites would have to be 2008 and 2006. The 2003 maternity gown was perfect for her at six months pregnant, the only ones I really do not care for at all as a whole are 2007 and 2005.

Beatrix is usually a miss and a miss - between the curtains draped around her and the birds on her head, it is not my taste (but so very Bea ).

Margriet IMO tends to 'play it safe', usually with a classic combo which does her well.

And, Laurentien, well sometimes the less said the better She definately goes for her own style and is not afraid to show it off, which is quite admirable.

Cool

I liked Maxima's gowns except for 2009, the color was beautiful, but I really didn't like the gown design at all, it looked too figure hugging and kind of cheap. Laurentien I liked her 2007 and 2009 ensembles.
Princess Margriet always looks spectacular and the Queen, well she has her own unique look.

Wow - I actually like Laurentien's, which doesn't happen often! Margriet's would be nice in something besides brown; Maxima's and Beatrix's are rather dull.

I love the dresses Maxima wore in 2003, 2004, 2006, and 2009 - very regal. The hat she wore this year was very classy!
